    Hi all, looking for some help on finding two engine manuals. Preferably some that can be added to the message board.

    One is the Allison V-1710 and the other one is for the Packard Merlin V-1650.

    Also Im looking for a manual on the Willi's Jeep manual to add to the message board.

    Some other manuals looking for would be any thing that deals with equipment for pilots of WWII of any nation. Parachutes, flight suits, Surviaval books, flare guns and such to start a new message thread on pilots equipment.

    Also looking for a R1155 Radio manual for the web site. This is the radio set used in the British Lancaster bombers.


    Know its a long shot but thanks in advance.

    If you're interested, I have a copy of the Allison Service School Handbook for V-1710 Engines - Models E and F. I could try to scan it, but someone would have to help me post it.

    I also have the Packard built Merlin engineering drawings on microfilm, but I have not gone through them in detail. Sometime there are manuals or engineering procedures included in these type of drawings, but again I have not gone through the microfilm in detail. If there's sufficient interest, I'll spend some time to look.

    Hi Bill,

    Anything you would be interesting in posting I know I would love to see. I would be more than happy to help you post them.

    If you are interested send me a PM and I will send you my email address. You could email me the pictures in jpeg format and I could make them into a pdf file and post them with credit to you of course.

    Thanks in advance Paul (aka Micdrow)
